About this Blend
While all of our blends rotate ingredients throughout the year as fresh crops become available, this blend features Latin American coffee as part of our Source Direct program.
In 1960 a group of coffee producers came together to create COOPNARANJO, R.L., (Naranjo Coffee Growers and Multiple Services Cooperative, LLC) in order to pool their efforts for coffee processing. Since that time the Cooperative’s members have purchased their own mill and have implemented comprehensive measures to improve coffee quality and production in addition to educating the members about sustainable farming practices and providing agricultural technical assistance. La Rosa comes from four farms located in the Naranjo district in the West Valley region. Naranjo is divided into 29 coffee growing areas that are “blessed for coffee” enjoying near ideal growing conditions – soil, altitude, rainfall, and temperature – that combine to produce a unique coffee with delicate aroma, mild body and pleasing taste. The Cooperative has successfully improved the coffee production of its members and enhanced their communities socially, financially, and sustainably.
Our favorite farmer and long-time Source Direct partner, Adolfo Reyes Portillo, has delivered his latest harvest. Adolfo's farm is nestled on the fertile volcanic slopes surrounding Lake Yojoa in the village of El Cielito and his careful husbandry and attention to detail allow a superior bean to flourish. Over the years he's been able to expand his farm and build a small wet mill on his property. He is thus able to process all his coffee to his specifications. We are pleased to offer his 2017 microlot, a totally satisfying morning cup.
